“Everyone has a plan until they’ve been hit.” —Joe Lewis

Logline: A production crew is shooting a beer commercial in an open bar, but when drunk patrons interrupt filming, the film crew and bar regulars decide to settle their differences with their fists in an epic bar fight.


HARD OUT is a short film that showcases the talents of the Pacific Northwest film community. Everyone on the team - actors, stunt performers, writers, cinematographers, directors, and production crew - are excited to bring this rollicking story to life. 


HARD OUT is a story with everything: drama, comedy, action, suspense - and beer! Shooting this film, with its intricately choreographed fight scenes, will make a great addition to everyone’s professional demo reels. And ultimately, no matter what role we play in the production of HARD OUT, we are all passionate about filmmaking.


We’d like you to be a part of the HARD OUT team, too! We can use everyone’s support, whether it’s contributing to our gofundme campaign, attending our fun (and stunt-filled) promotional events, or simply sharing the word about HARD OUT on social media. 


Thanks for visiting our page, and stay tuned for updates!
